Ballybrack Community Resource Centre

The Ballybrack Project Centre is based in the heart of Ballybrack and provides a safe space where people of all ages and abilities are encouraged to reach their potential. Under SICAP (Social Inclusion Activation Programme) we place a large emphasis on the importance of lifelong learning, and we find that many of our learners are looking for a new opportunities to engage, meet others and learn something new. We refer learners to the ETB for accredited education and we also provide a wide range of community education classes here in the Centre.

We have a strong focus on supports for older people and people with disabilities and we pride ourselves on the accessibility of the premises. We believe everyone should have a fair and equal opportunity to engage in decision making and we strive to promote inclusion for all. Our Programmes include:

  • Ballybrack Craft Group

  • CreateAbility Art Class
  • Ladies Bowling Social Group
  • The Walking Group
